The Glow Of The Globe

L
EAVE it to the Discovery Channel to light up your world. The
Discovery City Lights Globe revolves on its axis to show the world in the round. Turn the lights out and it glows. It will brighten the dark recesses of your home or office. It will serve as an exciting centerpiece instead of candles on your dining table. Be assured of nice conversation as you light up your world.

Discovery City Lights GlobePlug the cord into a wall outlet, turn off the lights,
and the globe revolves. Illumination appears from
major city locations. Itís eerie, and fascinating. The
effect is what you might see if orbiting the dark
side of the planet.

The globe is for indoor use only. Not recommended
for those under 14 years of age. Priced at $67.49 at
www.store.discovery.com.
